Exeter in Devon has been voted one of the best locations to run a business in. This could well be due to the excellent transport links the city has with the M5 motorway, or the more public choices of transport, either by plane via the airport or via the railway stations, but it could also have something to do with the character of the people of Exeter. It is a friendly and modest place that has a lot to offer to its visitors.
The Anglican Cathedral here, for instance dates from 1050. That is almost one thousand years of worship. Exeter has been called a city of beautiful buildings, but not a beautiful city. This is mainly due to the German bombardments of the second World War. These have flatted most of the city and that is the reason you can see a lot of modern buildings here. Princesshay is one of those and it is a main shopping centre for people living here and for tourists.
When you visit Exeter you do not want to get caught in Parliament Street. This street is one of the narrowest streets in the UK and two people will not be able to pass each other normally. Getting by Parliament Street you will be able to take in some gorgeous sights as for instance the above mentioned Cathedral. There will be a large sculpture there as well which depicts Richard Hooker, a famous Theologian born in Exeter from the 16th Century.
Make sure you have your grand children something to tell later on after you visited the "house that moved". This is a 14th Century building that, in 1961, was moved to make way for a new road. Inch by inch the 21 tonnes was moved to its new location. The ruins of Rougemont Castle are worth a visit as well even though there is no current use for them. Parts of the castle were in use as an Assize Court until early 2006 when a new Crown Courts building opened. A plaque near the ruined Norman gatehouse recalls that in 1685 Alice Molland, the last person executed for witchcraft in England, was imprisoned in Exeter.
